UN says cholera and dengue outbreaks have been reported in eastern Sudan as conflict grinds on

  • Outbreaks of cholera and dengue fever have been reported in eastern Sudan, where deadly fighting is ongoing between the military and a paramilitary force. The World Health Organization has confirmed 80 cases of cholera, resulting in 10 deaths, while over 500 suspected cases of dengue have been reported.
  • The floods caused by heavy rains have resulted in the destruction or damage of over 13,000 houses in Sudan. The combination of measles and malnutrition has led to the deaths of more than 1,200 children under the age of 5 in refugee camps.
  • Cholera outbreaks are not uncommon in impoverished Sudan, and climate change-induced storms and flooding are contributing to the spread of the disease. Ethiopia has also been affected by a cholera outbreak, with over 20,000 people affected and 270 deaths.
